Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94wY_tAommo&feature=youtu.be
This video is part of a series on this 2002 Chevy Cavalier. When this car first showed up it had been in a minor collision, it had slid off the road into a curb. I found a damaged wheel but I also found that it would not drive down the road properly and the steering wheel was way off. I concluded that the power steering rack had been damaged. This is part 1 of the replacement of that broken power steering rack. On a scale of 1-10 I would say the difficulty level of this one is about a 7 so be prepared for a bit of a fight if you need to do this job. In addition to the Cavalier this video should also apply to other GM vehicles of this same size, the Pontiac Sunfire comes to mind as well as the equivalent Buick and Olds offerings.
